In the spring of 2006, I had a lunch with Joe Mantegna at his wife’s restaurant, Taste Chicago (www.tastechicago.biz) in Burbank. During the lunch, I spoke to him about the God of Fire Charity Dinner for Children in Need. Knowing that the event would help children who are poor, underprivileged and helpless, he was glad to co-host the event with me. The rest is history. Thanks to Joe’s participation, the God of Fire Charity Diner raised over $800,000 for children in need since its first event at Hotel Bel-Air in 2006.
I am so happy to tell you that Joe, who is the nicest guy in Hollywood and star of the number one hit show, Criminal Minds, received his star on Hollywood Walk of Fame on April 29, 2011. We are going to outdo Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame by naming our new Angelenos size after our favorite Angeleno, Joe Mantegna: Angelenos Robusto Gordo JM. This very special cigar, which is blended by Carlos Fuente Sr., will come with Joe’s signature on the second band.
